|Modul - Globe Puzzle - Modul|
An astonishing concept driven album that traverses the spectrum of electronic music. Split into four groups of three tracks, with each group related to a cardinal point of the compass. These are lucid and complex compositions that travel between electro and ambient, with glitch flourishes.

|Fasp - Fasp [nsh003] - Fasp|
Vancouver-based Fasp have here a fascinating album of moving and complex IDM (that label is so meaningless now, isn't it?). An excellent review from Goodstuff explains this release better than I can: "Anyway, Fasp's eleven-tracker is everything but ambiguous, although the following description might not be a proof of that statement.

|Blue T-Shirt - SOLO/0705 [nsh080] - Blue T-Shirt|
A month in 36 minutes: one track for each day of July 2005. Blue T-Shirt cooks up a smorgasbord of electronic styles and moods. Track 5 has barely begun when it dissolves into swathes of reverb; track 12 could be the soundtrack to the world's shortest film; track 10 is a chaotic flurry of filthy drums and slurred synths; the final track is a sprawling slab of ambience weighing in at a lengthy 4:56...
